Are you transferring using the ADSK format?

Could you post a sample for us to take a look at?

Im having that issue too!
I modeled this completely in Inventor 2013 and this is what it looks like with shaded view setting.

(Those are the first two images attached.



I used the BIM exchange in Inventor and it went through perfectly fine. Only warning was it was a bit too complex. But other than that i was able to open it in Revit 2013.

However when i render it i get this smooth texture and the color is nowhere near the one in Inventor As on can see from the pics.

(Thats the last  image attached)


Any idea or help on getting the material to transfer through to Revit.

Lastly the material i used in Inventor its Iron cast.
